All About the Jumpsuit

Chasing Beauty Jumpsuit Sage

Pink Lily Boutique has scores of cute summer outfits for women, ensembles that you'll be absolutely dying over (in a good way, of course). However, as you'll see, we're fans of one-and-done outfits for the season. Any time you can choose an article of clothing that's a complete outfit in and of itself, you're winning. Once the warm weather hits, who has time to put together separate pieces? You need to pull something off the hanger and go, girl! Take advantage of all the extra daylight.

A jumpsuit is a fashionable, on-trend solution. Jumpsuits and rompers are carrying the season, and it's no wonder. May we suggest our  Chasing Beauty Jumpsuit in sage? The color is on-point yet unexpected for the season, which ensures that you'll stand out from everyone at the beach party, the backyard BBQ, or the bar after work. The smocked bodice has a bit of stretch. The fall of the pants is elegant enough for a semi-formal event. We're in love with the bow-tie straps, too. Splurge on a jumpsuit like this one and you'll have the perfect ensemble for a variety of summertime functions.

Tiers from Top to Bottom

Know My Heart Polka Dot Dress Purple

It's hard to layer your outfits in the summer because of the heat. This gorgeous little layered dress can step in to help, however. The  Know My Heart Polka Dot Dress is a fun, frothy confection with tier after tier of precious polka dots—one of the year's most popular patterns, by the way. Thanks to the ruffles and the square neckline, the dress has subtle 1920s flair. Choose the right shoes and accessories, and you can pull off a fabulous flapper aesthetic.

With a pair of white sneakers, flip flops, or ballet flats, the dress is casual and cool enough for a garden party, a lunch date with your besties, or even a walk in the park. Throw on some platforms or open-toed heels, however, and you're ready for a dinner date with that hottie from the next cubicle or a night of dancing with your girls.

A Vision in Overalls

Extended Weekend Light Wash Denim Overalls

Overalls are making a comeback, but that's not the only reason they deserve a spot in your summer wardrobe. Overalls are versatile, too. Depending on the shirt you wear with them and the shoes you choose, you'll fashionably fit in at an array of summer events. With heels and a sexy crop top, for example, you can hit the dance floor. Wear an off-shoulder sweater with belled sleeves to a casual dinner. Heck, you can even throw on a pair of overalls over your bathing suit and head to the beach without a second thought. Take our word for it: go ahead and invest in a pair of cowboy boots, too. Nothing beats cowboy boots and denim overalls when you're going for a lewk.

Not that we're biased or anything, but we suggest you start with our  Extended Weekend Light Wash Denim Overalls. The soft blue wash is an on-point shade for summer, but it carries into fall and spring, as well. The shorts are distressed to perfection, from the cat-whiskers of bleach to the artfully frayed holes. Wear your overalls with eyelet lace, a tank top, or your favorite hoodie. Take them camping or plan an unforgettable night of low-key fun.

A Little Leopard Goes a Long Way

Destined For Greatness Leopard Print Pants

You might not think that animal print has a place at many summer festivities, but that couldn't be further from the truth. Take a peek at our  Destined For Greatness Leopard Print Pants, for example. All it takes is a black or white tank top, camisole, or crop top to create a dynamic outfit. These pants bring the drama, which is why they can be the basis for several cute summer outfits for women. They feature a retro-inspired shape with a subtle flare. If you want to be extra bold, consider pairing your pants with a red top. Should you stick with black or white, add pops of color via bright shoes and vivid lipstick.

Heels are almost always the way to go with these pants, but platforms and sandals can take it down a notch. You can also anchor the pants with casual tops, such as simple tanks and tee shirts. You won't have any problem transitioning from the backyard to the boardwalk, for example, as long as you can pull a quick switch of your accessories and footwear.

Maxi-Mum Potential

Oceans Of Love Ombre Maxi Dress Blue

Maxi dresses are summertime staples. They're airy, breathable, and comfortable, not to mention the fact that they fit in practically everywhere. It's easy to put together cute summer outfits for women using a maxi and a few well-chosen accent pieces. Of course, you have to begin with a breathtaking dress. With that in mind, PLB would love to introduce you to the Oceans of Love Ombre Maxi Dress in blue.

First of all, we need to rave about the blue ombre effect. Wearing this dress is like wrapping yourself in the summer sky or the true-blue ocean. It screams “summer,” to the point that we have to wonder—if you don't wear this maxi dress at some point during the season, then are you really celebrating summer at all?

The full silhouette will flatter any figure. More to the point, it flows around you, creating a bewitching vibe. The skirt falls so long that it will probably hide your feet, which means that you're free to go barefoot if you like. Flip flops and a sun hat turn this into the ideal outfit for a beach day. Add platform heels or sandals along with an arm party of bracelets, however, and you can hit up a beach party or a romantic dinner for two.

Irresistible Romper Action

Key To Your Heart Romper Blue

Remember our conversation about jumpsuits? Well, rompers deserve a spot in your summer wardrobe, too. Rompers are to jumpsuits what shorts are to pants and what skirts are to dresses. A romper works whether you're headed to a low-key get together in your best friend's backyard, a birthday party, or even a daytime wedding. Just take care to choose colors and styles that you'll want to wear throughout the season.

The  Key to Your Heart Romper in blue is an on-point example. Spaghetti straps hold it up, but the bodice is technically an off-the-shoulder design. The little glimpse of skin is everything. In keeping with the ruffles trend that's sweeping through the summer's hottest fashions, there are ruffles everywhere, from the bodice and sleeves to the bottom hem. A bow belt ties at the side, heaping on a bit more feminine charm. You can't beat the sky-blue hue, and the silhouette of the romper itself resembles a party dress. The piece is laid-back enough for lunch with friends and fancy enough for a semi-formal fete.

Spotted Around Town

Back To Yesterday Polka Dot Dress Black CLEARANCE

Did we mention that polka dots are among the season's most highlighted patterns? They make for cute summer outfits for women, that's for sure. Polka dots tend to lend a vintage-inspired vibe to any outfit, and the  Back to Yesterday Polka Dot Dress in black is definitely retro. From the full skirt and halter-style bodice to the breezy cutout in the back, it's a dream of a little black dress. You can snag it in white, as well, but for a versatile summer piece, consider black. Wear it to work with a cardigan, to game night with friends, or a more formal event.

The Perfect Statement Piece

Expression Of My Heart Floral Kimono Mint

Sometimes, you don't need a one-and-done outfit to attain maximum wardrobe potential. Often, you simply need to make sure you have at least one statement piece in your summer wardrobe. This season, kimono cardigans are all the rage. It's not hard to understand why. A kimono cardigan can dress up jean shorts and a tank top. It can soften a sharp office outfit. Slip it on over a dress for extra drama. A kimono cardigan is stylish, theatrical, and adds the perfect pop of color to just about any ensemble. For a summertime vibe, we're wild about the  Expression of My Heart Floral Kimono in mint. How about you?
